Who We Are

Bravura is an independent Southern African investment banking firm, founded in 1999, specialising in corporate finance, structured solutions and property asset management services.

We create sustainable value for our clients, contributing to their businesses and wealth through the design and implementation of bespoke, robust and integrated solutions. Our success emanates from the substance of our advice to significant listed and private companies and entrepreneurs.

Bravura has two principal operating divisions:

  • Bravura Capital (Corporate Finance)
  • Bravura Solutions (Structured Solutions)

Innovation is integral to Bravura’s DNA. We question existing paradigms, challenge the norm and find a way where it appears that there is none. As an agile, responsive business, we identify new opportunities and financial solutions in the context of a constantly changing market.

Our people are our greatest asset. Bravura’s team of highly-experienced professionals aim to be leaders in their respective fields, leveraging backgrounds in banking, finance, legal, regulatory and accounting disciplines to guide and execute every transaction with energy, precision and excellence.
